Step 3: Taking the hard way out
To get at the iPod's hidden line-out you'll need to buy an adapter like the SendStation PocketDock Line Out. It's going to add a little bulk to your iPod, but hey, you've already got a headphone amp strapped to the thing, right?
Now, the line-out signal from your iPod sounds pretty dull without a quality amp to run it through, so if you're going to the trouble of adapting your iPod for a line output, you'll want an external headphone to make the effort worthwhile. That said, you don't have to use the iPod's line out to enjoy the benefits of a good headphone amp.
